Would anyone know why a footnote would go mssing after a Word file was cleaned? When I look at the BAK file, it's there alright, but is missing in the clean file. Cheers. Chris.

Do not clean the file in Workbench May 3, 2010

use a TW4WINCLEAN.MAIN macro instead in Word.
This should leave you with a document with untouched formatting.

Please note: this macro does NOT update the translation memory. When using this macro, always save a copy of your file in RTF-format for TM update first. Then use the macro on original file and use the RTF copy to update TM via the "cleanup" process.

Jerzy, you're a genius, thanks, that has made my evening. I'll remember this for a rainy day as well. Cheers, Chris.icon_smile.gif
